Post Thomas Cook-2

With Thomas Cook Airlines Belgium shutting down in November and 2 of the aircraft going to Brussels Airlines does anyone know what Thomas Cook will do the other 3 A320s? I was wondering if they would use them at the likes of Cardiff and Newcastle instead of the seasonal damp leased A320s?

I assume they'll be going back to Condor.

They have A320's and A321's too, All except one of the A321's will transfer to TCX next year though according to Jethro.

It does not.

The old days of the NUM et al are long gone. Those dinosaurs died out. They self-destructed, actually.
Actually they didn't "self destruct " They were wiped out as a result of something quite out of their control

Thomas Cook have made several changes to their Antalya flying schedule for Summer 2018, with a number of W-patterns between UK airports, as follows:

Birmingham (Wednesdays, W-pattern from Bristol)
Cardiff (Fridays, W-pattern from Bristol)
East Midlands (Mondays, W-pattern from Manchester)
Edinburgh (Saturdays, W-pattern from Stansted)
Leeds/Bradford (Thursdays, W-pattern from Newcastle)

Edinburgh and Leeds/Bradford are therefore new airports for Thomas Cook

Some years ago they served PMI from EDI in a W-pattern. They also offer a couple of destinations using Easyjet.

Does anyone know what the distribution of a/c will be by base for S18? I've tried to Google but I can't get any meaningful result?

They were advertising an extra NCL-CFU on a Thursday evening for 2018, this appears to have disappeared from their website now, you can't book it.

They're also offering ECONOMY PLUS on their A321s next year - the seating arrangement seems to be the same as existing all-econmy (38 rows) but it's only the first two rows of the AC that will have it.

Anyone shed any light on this?

Seating:

Is there extra legroom?

I note Premium is the first two rows - but when you try and book standard economy, rows 1-6 are blocked out and can't be reserved. Are they waiting for uptake and then possibly increasing premium to row 6 if it proves popular?

The only differnece I can see is you get an extra 5kg hold baggage and drinks. It works out an extra 200 for 2 of us in June, its cheaper to book standard economy, add on all the extras (meal, seats etc) as I don't think you'll get anymore leg.

Thomas Cook is to send A321's to Air Transat over the winter for the next 7 years, an A330 will come from Air Transat to Thomas Cook over the Winter.
